Shared Spaces with Barnum and Bailey

(The following is an entry that has been preposted. While Mr. Marvelous and I are vacationing in Costa Rica, I'll be backposting here at 4under3. See you in a couple of days.)

May 26, 08
These two little acrobats began sharing spaces before they were even born. Thus far, that's one of the many things they do best. Ok, except when Hazel has something in her hand that Norah finds interesting. (Scope out. Swoop in. Grab. Take. Slobber all over. Leave sister crying.) And that's sometimes the way it goes.

Norah finds everything Hazel has or does--interesting. We have a feeling Ms. Norie will be the careful, watchful one, which is how a big sister is supposed to be, right?

But sharing swing space..that's right up there with sharing sleeping space for these girls. A fantastic idea in their book. Imagine those pudgy little legs kicking in and out simultaneously with those little arms as they glide back and forth through the air. They could start up their own act in the Ringling Bros Circus. That is, if they act quick. Or get a bigger full bucket seat to perform in. Space seems to be limited and it looks as though there's very little vroom to grow.

SO cute...Cullen and Maisie can still do this, but not for long, either. And it's not nearly so cute and identical looking. They could be Siamese twins and you wouldn't know it! Okay, glad they are not. Cute as buttons though, that's for sure!!!!

hands down this is one of the coolest pictures I've seen in long time.

You need to enter it in some sort of contest!

I can't get enough of seeing pictures of your little twins! The little roly (sp?) legs dangling from the swing look edible!

All of my children have at some point shared the swing as well, how we're inovative when we need to be eh?. The big 2 still can as well (yes a tight fit, but they have a good time). Those 2 seem to be having agreat time though..and very clever "circus" reference~! CUTE CUTE!

We have pictures of Mel's Little Miss A and Avery sharing that same sort of space! Yes, we've tried to nap them together also. Didn't work. :)
